'Saxony' style cupboard door

Posted by florantha (My Page) on

My kitchen-to-be is slightly contemporary, but with lots of touches of well, other stuff. No stainless steel and no black appliances.

Have consulted with an independent cabinet maker but have become very attached to the "Saxony" style in Thomasville Cupboards.

What attracts DH is a door which is a "Shaker" style. I wanted either more spare or more decorated. This looks to be a compromise: three lines of stepped trim at top and bottom where the plywood panel meets the horizontal frame pieces.

What I need from other GW posters is reaction to the general style for my purposes and any background info on this style--when did it first appear in kitchens, does it connect to a particular something in historic time like a certain manufacturer/designer or a cabinet in a museum or what, etc. Have other companies carried it and discontinued it or is it rather unique? Also wondering if it requires a glaze in order to make the ridges stand out visually or if simple finish is sufficient.

Any images of the style in actual use would be very appreciated.

Am also still entertaining other cupboard door suggestions which are in the same general design direction and other mfgs which carry the "Saxony" style.

Thanks (in advance).

RE: 'Saxony' style cupboard door

If you haven't done so already, I recommend posting this question on the "Discussions" side. "Discussions" is for on-topic discussions on kitchens; this side is more for posting finished kitchens for staging to the Finished Kitchens Blog (FKB) or sometimes other picture-heavy threads and isn't nearly as busy. (Lastly, "Conversations" is for off-topic discussions...any topic you want!)

Good luck!
